Acupuncture for Hayfever Sufferers

Acupuncture to ease hayfever symptoms?

Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to ease the relief of hayfever suffering. It can be used successfully during the hayfever season but is effective as a preventative treatment pre-hayfever season. Acupuncture has been shown to decrease significantly:

  • Runny Nose
  • Itchy Eyes
  • Sneezing
  • Tiredness


    Acupuncture for Hayfever Research

    Research published in the journal Allergy, shows that Chinese Medicine can dramatically reduce symptoms such as a runny nose and itchy eyes. When they used acupuncture needles with a Chinese herbal medicine, the number of patients feeling better was double that in a group not given the treatment.

    In one study, researchers at the University of Erlangen in Nuremberg, Germany, and the Charite University Medical Centre in Berlin, recruited 52 hayfever sufferers aged between 20 and 58.

    Half received a six week treatment of weekly acupuncture with herbal medicine every day, while the other half had needles inserted into non-acupuncture points and were given a non-active herbal formula.

    The results showed that 85% of those on acupuncture and herbal medicine reported an improvement in well-being, compared to just 40% in the other group.
